After an early raise, Mike Watson reraised the middle to 15.5K, then called when Anatoly Filatov raised the button to 40.75K. Watson check-called for 23,325 on the flop, and they both checked the turn. Watson shoved for 205,475 on the river, and Filatov called it off with less.
Filatov flopped best with the ace, but the Canadian Watson got there on the river with the straight. He picked up another pot the following hand to be the first player to stack up more than 500K in chips so far today.
